I really like Lore Denethor. He's my favorite core set hero and I still use a lot today. he is mainly overshadowed by Leadership Denethor, who works in most decks. In solo, becomes even more powerful, is a very good defender, and has access to a burning brand. Denethor is very underrated and I highly recommend him.
Gondor. Noble. Steward.
Action: Exhaust Denethor to look at the top card of the encounter deck. You may move that card to the bottom of the deck.
Beregond, The Return of the King
Core Set #10. Lore.
It took me a while to understood how great Denethor really is. His and are useless, but as defender, he shines. His ability is game changing mainly in solo play and with Unexpected Courage and Henamarth Riversong combo, he actually gives you control of Encounter deck, which is the strongest ability, you can have in this game. Forget Eleanor, when Denethor is on the table, no treachery card even reach the game. Very good artwork. Verdict: 5/5.
